Musical Utopias

A festival of sonic escape

Musical Utopias is a festival gathering music-makers and artists across multiple genres, all of whom strive to build new worlds in their work, daring to step into the unknown in their process of creation. A project of Ensemble Klang, it marks 15 years of their existence, and while assembling some of the group’s key artistic collaborators it looks optimistically to the future.

It opens on Thursday 20 Dec with the world premiere of Peter Adriaansz’s brand new evening-length work Environments. International guests on Friday bring American free jazz and minimalism in an evening provoking awareness and change, including works by Julius Eastman and a new work by Keir Neuringer. Saturday brings nine-hours of music of trance and transcendence with acts ranging through contemporary, pop, electronica, rock, classical, dance, and music theatre: 9x13, Julia Wolfe, Knalpot, Michael Gordon, Astrid Boons and much much more. Running throughout the whole festival are videos and installations.
